Knicks-Nets rivalry in intensive care
By Mike Mazzeo
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Some rivalry.
The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks have played three games so far this season.
All three of those games have been blowouts.
Now, on Tuesday night, with basically nothing to play for, it looks like both teams are going to sit most of their key players. I’d hate to be a fan who paid top-dollar hoping this would be a prime late-season matchup.
Here’s your injury report (Kind of reminds me of football):
Out: Shaun Livingston (toe), Alan Anderson (abdominal muscle), Mirza Teletovic (personal).
In: Deron Williams (knee), Paul Pierce (shoulder), Joe Johnson (calf)
Out: Carmelo Anthony (shoulder)
In: Amar'e Stoudemire
Asked where the Nets-Knicks rivalry is at, Nets coach Jason Kidd replied, “At an all-time high.”
Reporters laughed. The interview ended.
As for his team’s next two games, Kidd said the biggest thing was making sure his team is healthy.
“We’ll see who can go tonight and who can go tomorrow,” he said.
